      its argued that for educational purposes some unrealistic cartoons are allowed, or for anatomy...

      but otherwise its strictly not allowed to draw animate objects, tho everything else is allowed

              so is watching caroons haram? How about video games? they are just digital sketches of people?

              Reading a comic book Haram? that is sketches of people? Comics in newspaper? Political cartoons?

              They are all sketches of people.

                Someone asked this the other day and I found this:

                'Praise be to Allah, the best of creators, the lord of the worlds.

                Drawing pictures is prohibited in Islam, because this is like duplicating the great creations of Allah. One of the name of Allah is Musaawir which means The giver of form, Shape, colour.

                A human being who makes a sculpture, picture or a painting of someone is claiming for all practical purposes that he or she too can make the same form or image. Therefore it appears in the Sahih of Al-Bukhari and in other Hadith that on the day of Judgement, those who will make pictures will be told, ‘When you have tried to imitate us, make the imitation perfect too-if you have the power to do so. We did not simply make an image. We have invested it with a spirit too. If you claim to have created it then you better put a spirit inside the thing you have made.
                Another reason for the prohibition of pictures is that the angels of Allah hate pictures and dogs, and surely they hate it only because Allah does. The angels are not like humans, they dont have their free will to think they think according to what Allah orders them. Praise be to Allah, He surely is the best of Creators. Angels do not enter a house with pictures or a dog so therefore the blessings bought down by the angels would decrease.

                Another reason appearing in some Hadith that pictures are unnecessary embellishments of this world. Of course in our time, pictures yield many benefits but thousands of crimes including those that range between immodesty and pornography, also breed and flourish from these very pictures. In short, it is not simply one reason alone that was made the basis for it’s prohibition, rather there is a host of reasons why the Shariah of Islam has declared it prohibited to make and use pictures of the living.

                Surely Allah knows is the most merciful most gracious so do try not to draw pictures. Inshallah'

                  Drawing is of two types:

                  One is drawing pictures of animate beings. It says in the Sunnah that this is forbidden. It is not permitted to draw anything that depicts animate beings, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said, according to the saheeh hadeeth: “Every image maker will be in the Fire.” And he (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The most severely punished of people on the Day of Resurrection will be the image-makers, those who tried to imitate the creation of Allaah.” And he (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The makers of these images will be punished on the Day of Resurrection, and they will be told, ‘Give life to that which you have created.’”

                  The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) cursed those who consume riba (interest, usury) and those who pay it, and he cursed the image-makers. This indicates that making images is forbidden. The scholars interpreted that as referring to images of animate beings such as animals, people and birds.

                  With regard to drawing inanimate objects – which is the second type of drawing – there is no sin in that, such as drawing mountains, trees, planes, cars and the like. There is nothing wrong with that, according to the scholars.

                  With regard to forbidden kinds of pictures, an exception is made in cases of necessity, such as drawing pictures of criminals so that they will be known and caught, or pictures for identity cards which are essential and which cannot be obtained otherwise, and other cases of necessity. If the ruler decides that producing images of criminals is necessary, because of the seriousness of their crimes and to protect the Muslims from their evil when they are known, or for other reasons, there is nothing wrong with that. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

                  “…He has explained to you in detail what is forbidden to you, except under compulsion of necessity …”

                  [al-An’aam 6:119]

                        Re: is it haram to draw sketch art?

                        so if drawing is haram, is watching cartoons, playing video games haram?

                        I mean if you are doing these things you are supporting something that is haram. Like selling alcohol to people or listening to music. You watch the cartoon buy or play the video game, you are telling people to make more. You are promoting haram.

                        So is it harm to do such things as watching cartoons and playing video games because it is supporting haram deeds of drawings and sketching?

                          Reflect on the work of art and you may attain to the artist.
